Is the BWC $15,000 Medical Only Program Right for Your Organization?

Protect your Workers’ Compensation Experience Modification Rate (EMR) and Group Rating Discount with the $15K Medical Only Program. The Bureau of Workers’ Compensation $15K Medical-Only Program offers employers the opportunity to pay up to the first $15,000 in medical and pharmacy bills for medical only claims. By directly paying the medical expenses, employers may potentially lower their workers’ compensation premiums and maintain an EMR below 1.0.
